vacation day one

I'm out of town on vacation. Not quite disconnected from everyday life, but almost. I'll be at the hotel in Las Vegas. Meeting/orientation with the guides at 8pm for the big adventure that begins tomorrow: rafting the Grand Canyon from one end to the other.

But tonight, meet. Get our dry bags. Then stuff everything into those grocery-sized dry bags -- all eight days worth of stuff.

Followed by sleep and an early rise. The bus leaves at 4:30 or 5 in the morning for a five-hour drive to Lee's Ferry for our put-in.
